Plummeting into a hurricane?s eye. Tunneling through San Andreas?s interior. Zipping in and out of colliding galaxies. At Mayborn Science Theater, these sorts of adventures are par for the course. Here, wonders of the natural world beam onto a 60-foot digital screen that wraps around an entire 180-seat theater, creating immersive educational experiences. Screened during weekends and weekday matinees, science-minded shows focus on diverse, family-friendly topics such as stars and tropical reefs. Its laser light shows, on the other hand, eschew education for spectacle, dazzling audiences with 3D graphics and 15,000 watts of digital sound.

Outside the dome, Mayborn continues educating visitors at its gallery. Amidst rotating displays on subjects such as rocks and minerals, the Vice Space station showcases Hubble photographs and shares updates from the Mars rover. The exhibit?s recent acquisitions even include tiles from actual space shuttles, as well as tiles from actual Mahjong games played by astronauts sitting in NASA waiting rooms.

Sure, a bucket of popcorn and soda are great at a movie?but so are fresh slices of pizza, fried shrimp, and milkshakes. At Grand Avenue Theater, moviegoers can feast on those treats and others?including Starbucks coffees?while catching a flick or relaxing in the parlor area. But the luxuries don't end there, since each of the building's theaters feature crisp digital projection and comfy stadium seating. Most seating is by general admission, but viewers can also opt for reserved seating, which includes larger seats, more leg room, and guaranteed seat locations so nobody has to leave a cardboard cut-out of themselves when they get up to use the restroom.

Since it first flung open its double doors in 1900, The Beltonian's patchwork brick façade has housed a church, an antique store, and a billiard hall. But its theatrical pedigree proved too strong, and today, the venue has transformed back into a performance space. The Beltonian aims to bring top-notch comedy to the community by booking nationally touring rib-ticklers three nights a week. A menu keeps appetites and thirst at bay while showgoers lean back in plush seats, which are arranged stadium-style to facilitate easy viewing of every clever quip.

Once upon a time there were three friends?Bill, Michael, and Brendan?who loved three simple things: food, drink, and sports. They decided to combine their passions into a business where visitors could share in their enjoyment. Thus, they founded Third Base, a sports bar that began offering drink specials, classic bar food, and endlessly televised sports as soon as it opened. The community enjoyed the establishment so much, the owners soon expanded, opening two additional locations.

Each Third Base location boasts all the amenities locals have come to expect from the proprietors. In addition to numerous flat-screen TVs that bathe the dining rooms in a technicolor glow, sports action is also beamed to the relaxing patios. Drink specials include cocktails and beers, though there are also creative signature drinks like a frozen sangria-laced margarita. The kitchen serves up such treats as a black-and-blue burger, tilapia tacos, wings in eight different sauces, blackened salmon, and decadent milk shakes. On special occasions, Third Base plays host to events that range from crayfish boils to live music to tailgates that celebrate the invention of beer cozies.

In 1996, the first Phil's Philly Grill introduced its signature hot sandwiches to Dallas from a single, modestly sized kitchen nestled into a bustling Metroplex. Because its founders brought decades of experience to the business, their sandwiches' of sauteed veggies and meats pleased anyone who got their hands on them. Soon, the concept steadily grew to occupy more than a half-dozen locations around Texas.

Today, sandwichsmiths at seven locations serve up everything from lena, certified rib-eye steaks?onions, peppers, cheese, and mushrooms included?to the Texas bacon barbecue burger, which understandably includes bacon, barbecue sauce, and a strange resemblance to the state of Texas. Phil's certified grill experts bring 40 hours of training to prepare chicken breasts marinated with 17-ingredients and hand chop fresh vegetables and cheeses. An array of Philly sandwiches, grilled salads, gyros plates, and wraps round out the menu. The ownership's commitment to hard work, passion, and fine meats have also spawned franchising opportunities for those looking to launch their own little bit of Phil's.

Vino 100 serves cheeses and imaginative pasta dishes in its cozy storefront, with live entertainment on Thursdays and Fridays. Start off a meal with a cheese plate, bedecked with one to four types of dairy ($9/one cheese, $20/four). Choose from brie, fontina, Brazos Valley–smoked gouda, and a Brazos Valley cheese of the month. Small plates such as the artichoke dip with crab and spinach ($12) or the goat cheese with raspberry-chipotle sauce ($6) whet appetites and fill bellies to half capacity. Send hunger packing with a stick and bindle by ordering a filling entree such as the truffle-oil mac 'n' cheese ($8), brimming with four italian cheeses, black-forest ham, egg noodles, and a dusting of smoked gruyere. Or try a savory shrimp-and-sausage cheesecake ($12), crowned with a crawfish rémoulade instead of traditional whipped cream and cookies. Polish off the meal with delectable dessert ($6 each), such as the s'mores panini, a combination of marshmallow fluff, graham crackers, and Nutella, encased in a ciabatta bun and grilled to gooey goodness. Stay alert by downing an affogato, a scoop of vanilla-bean ice cream topped with espresso, ensuring you never again fall asleep during an all-cymbal band recital.
